PF8 - More abusive license model.

PF8's purchase system allows for 3 activations per license, with a deactivation system for removing old/unused computers from being activated.

This is crap. I should not have to deal with activation; I am not using Windows. What was the problem with the old model - buy a license, use it on the computers you own? As it stands, this new model is far more complex and feels restrictive in a very frustrating way - why not just internally monitor each entries of a license key and blacklist keys that are being used on 50+ machines or some such number? I don't own any other Mac application that has an activation system like this. I don't like it.
